FAQ

Ask a Question…

Who can get Buzzhive Franchise solutions?

Buzzhive Marketing uses marketing channels like SEO, Google Ads, and social media to 1) attract new franchisee leads, and 2) increase revenues at each location by attracting new customers. Franchises often have unique challenges of scale, consistency, implementation, and scope, and our solutions help manage these. A franchise business has franchisees that they are supporting, and we help with communication, reporting, results, and transparency. A multi-location business often has similar challenges but doesn’t have to recruit new franchisees, and they often don’t have the need to support individual store owners. The process for marketing individual locations is very similar for franchises and single-owner multi-location businesses.

Our specific approach is designed to streamline a multi-location business.  We can fit your business whether you have hundreds of locations now or are simply planning to start multiplying now.

Is there a minimum number of locations?

Most offerings don’t have a minimum number of locations to get started. If you are just getting started or have a lot of locations, we can help. If you get started with a solid digital marketing strategy early, you can often see strong results early, and accelerate growth.  Starting off on the right path will save you time, money, and resources in the future.

How do you handle location websites?

Our goal is to meet you where. you are.  However, we offer 3 primary options.

One approach is having a location page for each location on your website. We work with you to create unique content for each, making sure that pages aren’t seen as duplicate, or too similar to rank well in Google. We include individual local business schema and structured data, content, images, and on-site optimizations to help each page improve its relevance in its market. This has an impact on local rankings, and the ranking ability of the Google business listing. Depending on what a business currently has, we may add technology to add features for these location landing pages or use what is there. 

Another approach is to offer full standalone websites per location.  Depending on your marketing approach and individual offerings or franchise model, this may be a perfect fit.  Website access can tailored to fit your exact specifications.

A third solution is to provide simple location sites within our All-in-One platform.

We can discuss the pros and cons of each model with you, but it truly comes down to how our model can fit your model.

How long is the onboarding process?

Depending on the number of locations, onboarding can take a few days to several weeks. It also depends on what technology and solutions are already in place. For instance, if we have to create solutions for landing pages and content, then it can take some time to get the infrastructure in place to execute strategies. Businesses are often coming from different places, so we’ll analyze our starting position and help determine an implementation timeline.

Marketing campaigns can be live in as little as 5 days.

How long does it take to get marketing results?

Organically speaking, for locations in less competitive markets, results can be pretty quick (within 3 months). Moderately competitive markets may take 5-6 months, and highly competitive markets can take up to 9-12 months. Competition is higher in more densely populated areas, as more competitors target those areas.

For paid campaigns, we typically see immediate results in terms of visibility and traffic.  However, lasting ROI that can be used for true planning and estimating for lead generation can take 60-90 days.  

This can also be affected by the seasons, market, existing competition and the product/service you offer.
